my friend just can not stop using crack cocaine.he is
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.
I read your query and understand your concerns.
Although it is very difficult for a heavy user to remain sober but it is never impossible. Crack cocaine causes a sense of severe psychological dependence and little physical dependence, which means that any motivated patient can get rid of it permanently. This is because physical dependence is more problematic for more patients where the patient have little control while the psychological dependence can be taken care by high motivation itself.
Since Narcotics anonymous and AA increase the motivation of individual it is rightly possible that NA can be of much help to your friend provided he is willing it a fair trial.
Regarding your next question I feel they are immunological reaction to Levamisole, an adulterant often found it cocaine samples across United States. It is a kind of protein which causes allergy and lot of medical problems including arthritis.
I hope this answers you.
